NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN CHESS PDF Print E-mail

By Stewart Reuben, February 03 2008

 

When I was a child I remember our teachers printing on a page by having a tray of jelly and carving words into the jelly. They then put ink onto the tray, put a sheet of paper onto the jelly, removed it and had the information on the sheet. They repeated this exercise until there was one sheet for each child.

 

Later there were great improvements. One typed onto a plastic skin using a mechanical typewriter. The type cut into the skin. The skin was put onto a Xerox machine and the ink came through the letters. Now it was possible to run off large quantities. Errors were corrected by pasting over the incorrect words with liquid paper. This was how I produced my first chess bulletins and there remain collections of many events with the games recorded in this way.

WHY DO WE PLAY CHESS? PDF Print E-mail

 

Chess is hard. It involves mental, emotional and physical strain. What are the rewards? -Rick Garel

 

What attracts me about chess is "personal best ". It is the challenge of rising above the level you may find yourself at any particular time. We all strive to improve, regardless of the level of our play, and the understanding we have of the game. And I am attracted when it is done under tournament conditions, where there is serious opposition to you finding the best moves, and playing a game you are proud of. It gets the adrenalin going. Finally there is the great element of "surprise ". Some tactics are truly beautiful to behold. Best if you find them. But much appreciated even when played against you, and you didn't see it coming. -Bob Armstrong
